We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Bartram's Garden! It is a beautiful outdoor venue with a great barn and plenty of space for a reception rent and areas for guests to hang out. The staff were easy to contact, the prices were fair, and the gardens were gorgeous. Highly recommend if you want a simple but lovely outdoor space and flexibility with decor and vendors.

Bartram's Garden was a fantastic place to get married. I'm surprised it hasn't been reviewed yet on WeddingWire. The rustic, wild beauty with the Philadelphia skyline in the background is magical. I absolutely recommend you work with Diverse Catering/ Ken Correll, who manages 90% of the weddings at Bartram's. He knows how it works and how to use the space well, what to do in rain, who to contact about extra time, etc. Beautiful beautiful spot.

Beautiful location! Andrea was very quick to respond to any questions that I had! The day of the wedding, Bill was a great support! We researched many different venues online, and had our list narrowed down to 3 or 4 in our budget that we were going to visit. We visited Bartram's first, and booked our date on the spot! We fell in love with the buildings, the gardens, the view of the city.
It is a picturesque setting for a wedding, and I am so glad that we picked it for our big day!

This location was so unique and beautiful. We felt great giving our money towards care of the facility and providing the garden to be present for years to come. I would make sure if you want pick of your date to book more than a year in advance.

We had a beautiful wedding at this venue. More so, the price was extremely affordable and the staff are second to none. I run events for a living and have never worked with venue staff who are so accommodating and easy to work with. I can not say enough good things.

We chose Bartram's because of the one site option for ceremony and reception, the beauty of the gardens, and the historic nature. The staff was professional and helped make the day flawless. They even suggested ways to make the event special based on past experience. Heavy thunderstorms had been forecasted and so they helped come up with a plan b; however, it never rained. I believe they are in the process of revising their event guidelines and so I'm not sure it will continue to be a good value. However it is a unique and magical place.

Bartram's Garden is a beautiful venue for any event. We had some issues in the process, like lack of responsiveness and communication and falsified information (was told I would have an area to freshen up and keep my personal effects, which I was then told at the event I could not enter). Nothing major though, and still worthwhile in terms of supporting Philadelphia history and horticulture.

We chose the venue for our wedding after our first venue cancelled 2.5 months before our wedding. We loved the historic value and natural beauty of the gardens and felt it was perfect for a rustic chic wedding. Although it down poured on our wedding day, all our guests loved the gardens and felt it was the most beautiful location! The staff were really quick to help us move the outdoor ceremony indoors. Unfortunately their biggest flaw was miscommunication. Not all members seemed to be on the same page which made setting up the day before and the day of very difficult as various information was given prior to these days. A few of the members were very unprofessional towards my husband and a friend that were helping to set up. These same members were very rude at the end of the night as well which made some things stressful. Overall we had a great wedding and if I were to do it again, I would still hold it at Bartram's.
